    Put deep purple in a boy baby quilt? I am making a newborn quilt out of brights and batiks for my daughter. What do you think?

    Sure why not. I would use it as long as it goes with your other colors.

    it just depends on how "purple" it is. if it is more bluey purple I think that it would be okay but more of a reddish purple I would shy away from. but that is because my hubby doesn't want any "girly" things in his sons stuff. hehe put it up with the other fabrics and we could tell you if it is to "girly" looking for a boy.

    The colors are mostly primary and secondary,so that purple is a solid purple. I can't see any blues or reds in it because they look evenly proportionate. I am going to make a tossed nine patch and maybe applique some stars on it. Since I have never appliqued before, that should be interesting. :-)

    When we were expecting our first child, my Hubby hoped for a boy. He painted the entire babyroom, Including the ceiling in Barney purple. Thank fully we had a girl, but I painted it as soon as he went overseas! I couldn't take it anymore!
    So yes, i would add that color. My son loves purple.

    I was going to say the same thing! Yes, deep purple is fine for a boy unless the parents don't want it. I know some dads don't like it.

    I see no reason why you should not put purple in this quilt. I am currently crocheting a baby blanket for my youngest neice out of very bright primary colors with a grapey purple and white thrown in for extra measure. It is coming out very nice and the purple add a certain punch to the blanket. So I am sure that the purple in your quilt will do the same thing. Jeanniebelle

    My son - when he was about 2 - had a turquoise jacket with reddish purple fleece inside the sleeves. So when we turned them up, it was exposed next to the turqoise.

    Only when I went to sell it did I realize that it was a girl's jacket.

    But he loved that jacket and its colors. So go ahead and use what you like.
